International Civil and Commercial Law (Advanced LL.M.)

Career preparation

This programme will provide you with the skills to work in as a legal professional in a global legal environment.

A number of the programme’s instructors either have been or still are actively involved in the legal or business arena, and practising professionals are invited to teach as guest lecturers. This gives you the opportunity to interact with them and learn about their work and the latest developments in the field. You will also have the opportunity to participate in several European-based study trips that are related to your courses. These contacts will serve as a valuable professional network during your career.

Along with a solid academic foundation provided by one of the most prestigious law schools in the world, you will further develop your professional skills through activities such as participation in moot courts and workshops with business professionals.

If you participate in the Willem C. Vis Moot Court Competition on international arbitration you will receive additional training and gain experience in research, analysis, legal writing, and pleading and arguing a case.

Career services

One of the biggest assets you will have in your career is your professional network. Through your interactions with professionals in the classroom, as well as during your internship, study trip and site visits, you will begin to build your own international network. These contacts could greatly enhance your career prospects, as they often help with job leads and recommendations.

Every year a special Career Week is organised for all advanced master’s students which includes various workshops, presentations and trainings.
